Maybe I’m just angry today, but I rather enjoyed this rant by Senator Bernie Sanders. I am in no way a socialist, but I would have trouble disagreeing with much of what he says here:
History shows us that many of the countries that went socialist or communist in the last century did so because the country had swung too far in the opposite direction and the poor and middle class became desperate, or because their economies had collapsed during the great depression. I hope that is not what is in store for us. The last time the US had such a large gap between the rich and the poor was in the 1920’s.
